Laughing Cloud got her attention. A gleam transpired in his eyes.

“Ish-kay-nay, would you do something for me?”

“You need my help skinning the deer?”

“No. Would you teach me to kiss the white eyes way?”

She raised her hands in the air. “Whoa, why do you wish to know that?”

The heavyset man cracked the whip a little harder. “Next time I won’t strike the dirt. I’ll slap some straps across your back so you won’t disregard another order I give each of you. Now get back to work! Larkin, get over here.”

The other chunky man ambled toward him. “What’s up?”

“I saw that Calahan in town today with that Beasley girl. In fact I saw more than one Calahan. Even saw me a couple more of them Beasley girls. That one sure did look purty with that long dark hair. She sure does look nice in them clothes that fit her body.” He rubbed his chin. “She would bring us in some right big money. I wouldn’t mind having a poke at her myself.”

“I don’t think you want to be messing with any of those Beasley girls. I know when Cottonwood and I went that night to get his money; they were well equipped with rifles. You’d probably get your head shot off.”

“You let me handle them Beasley girls. That one sure would keep me warm at night. I could persuade her to like me, if you get my drift.”

“Don’t be asking for trouble, Sylvester. So far there’s been no trouble with us hiring these men to work in the mines while we do some rustling on the side, but messing with those women. I’m telling you, that better not happen. We could lose everything. Me and Peterson like things just the way they are.”

“Yeah, the two of you would.”

“Speaking of taking a poke, you got that little girl down in the mines. I think I’d like to try my hand with her for a spell.”

“Sold her today.”

“You did what?”

“Yeah one of them Beasley girls, mighty fancy one, marched over and insisted I sell her. The next thing I know one of the Calahan brothers offered me two hundred and fifty dollars for that Chinese girl.”

Larkin almost lost what few teeth he had left. “Two hundred and fifty dollars?”

“Oh yeah, right off the street he pulls out the money and hands it to me.”

“Wow. Imagine if we had some more of them girls we could sell.”

“It’s hard getting them pretty ones like that one. Besides, I’ve set my sight on another beauty I want to capture and make a profit from.”

Larkin removed his hat then slapped it to his thigh. “I’m telling you Sylvester, leave them Beasley girls alone or everything we have worked for will go up in smoke.”

“You leave that to me to worry about. Besides, I know the real reason you are in a frenzy over this. Don’t worry; your secret is safe with me. Now get back in those mines and make sure those men are digging for that gold.”

Larkin stomped off, mumbling obscenities. Sylvester Metcalf was completely out of bounds even thinking about interfering with the Beasley’s or the Calahan’s. He better really watch his step or everything would be tumbling down in their midst, and he for one wasn’t ready to have his neck swinging from a noose

Linda Lattimer lives in southern Georgia, not to far from Ft. Benning. She has always had a passion for writing. Growing up, reading was a part of her life. It led her to composing some of her own stories. She enjoys traveling, especially visiting the West, particularly areas in southern and northern Arizona. Her frequent location to travel and stay has been at Raymond Gary State Park, in Ft. Towson, Oklahoma. The beauty of the lake is tranquil and allows her to do some fishing, while coming up with great stories ideas. Every place she visits, lends her great inspiration for her stories. She is glad to have another book with Wings e-Press to be published. An avid reader of just about anything, she also reviews books. In her spare time, she likes to go fishing in the Chattahoochee River. They have good size catfish; just have to watch out for the alligators.

This is her seventh book with Wings, and she is absolutely delighted. She loves when readers drop in at her website and send her an email: Lynda1L@yahoo.com, or LyndaLLattimer@aol.com http://www.coffeetimeromance.com/OurAuthors/LindaLLattimer/AboutMe.html or visit her at myspace, www.myspace.com/lindallattimer

Marjorie's Homecoming: Linda Lattimer has created a read so full of spunky characters the reader never knows what is going to happen next. Feuding/loving neighbors experience twists and turns of life that makes you wonder what is really going on between them and when things will get sorted out. And, then, the author leaves you wanting more with teasing tidbits of information that makes the next book a must read as well. – Mary Jean Kelso, Wings-ePress author , The Homesteader series and Goodbye Is Forever
